A single fire engine from the St. George Fire Department responded to the fire that had ignited in the engine compartment of a parked van around 9:15 p.m., St. George Fire Capt. Coty Chadburn said.

The fire was extinguished in short order and no one was harmed. The cause of the fire is unknown at this point, Chadburn said.

The van’s owner had just had the vehicle worked on in a shop last week, Chadburn said. He had been planning to sell it, he said.

β€œIt’s unfortunate for a person to lose their only vehicle,” Chadburn said.

St. George and Dixie State Police officers also responded to the scene.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
